My Internship Experience with Self Love Beauty

As my internship with Self Love Beauty comes to an end, I thought I reflect on the moments of this challenging yet incredible journey. Since joining the Self Love Beauty, I have not only seen growth in my work ethic but my leadership skills as well. I feel that this internship has made me confident person overall in myself and what I have to offer to the world.
Before starting my internship, I was a self-conscious college student residing in Virginia struggling to find my purpose. Luckily, I came across the Self Love Beauty Facebook page and fell in love with the mission of the organization. I began following the page and weeks later saw a job posting for remote interns and knew I wanted to be a part of this organization. I applied for the Email Marketing internship, thinking I would just be doing traditional emails, not knowing that it is so much more to the email marketing world.
After finding out I got my internship, little did I know I was in for a long haul for the next 5 months. I was clueless about MailChimp and doubted my creative abilities to actually to be able to do the job. Thankfully, Lisa being an amazing mentor/boss never gave up on me from the beginning and encouraged me to keep believing in myself. Even through my highs and low moments, I kept improving and becoming better person in the process.
This internship is very different from other traditional ones because it challenges you and allows you to be self-starter. Many internships are non-productive and typical office work duties that does not need you to push yourself and your abilities. However, this internship allowed me to be independent and have as much creative control when it came to my work assignments. I feel having this much freedom in an internship, helped me to be able to work on my craft and learn new things organically through the process. Also, this internship being remote allowed me to be able pursue other opportunities and have a flexible work schedule. Overall, this internship had a lot of great moments but it also was challenging at times that ultimately made me stronger.
During this internship, I had overwhelming moments from getting frustrated within myself from having self-doubt and struggling on certain work assignments. I believe these challenges pushed me and brought me outside my comfort zone for the better. I now know leaving this internship, I am a better person than who I was before I started.
The only advice I would give to the new interns, is to not be too hard on yourself and enjoy the journey. Interning for Self Love Beauty will be life-changing experience and will push you out of your comfort zone. Lisa will not only be a boss to you, but a mentor to keep you motivated and focused on your goals. I know my time with Self Love Beauty has come to an end but I know once a member of this organization, you will always be one.
